{hawaiian haystacks}

Everyone knows Hawaiian Haystacks, right? Well, I like to make mine a little different. Instead of using the ever-popular Cream of Chicken soup (of which I am not a huge fan), I use a basic white sauce that I've seasoned. LOVE it!


You'll need: (another great thing about this recipe is that you can adjust the amounts to however many people you are serving)

1. Chicken breasts, cubed (or sliced) and cooked
2. Basic white sauce, seasoned to taste (see recipe below)
3. Toppings: mandarin oranges, pineapple, green onion, tomatoes, cheese, Chinese noodles, etc.
4. Cooked white rice

-Layer rice, sauce, chicken, and toppings.

White Sauce-Betty Crocker Cookbook

1 T. butter
1 T. flour
1/8 tsp. salt
Dash pepper
3/4 c. milk

In a small saucepan, melt butter. Stir in flour, salt and pepper. Stir in milk all at once. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 1minute more. Makes 3/4 c. sauce.
*You can either add the chicken to the sauce, or serve them separately.
*We 5x this recipe for a family of 5, but we like extra sauce.
*You can also add any other seasoning you would like---I like to add some thyme and seasoning salt.
